Saturday, March 23 @ 8:45 am

Embark on a journey through the deserts of North America, Africa, and Australia! See more than 600 animals and 50 gardens as you learn how we’re saving the world’s wildlife and wild places together. For over five decades, The Living Desert has been engaged in the important work of preserving, conserving and interpreting the desert and all its varied plant and animal life. 

On Saturday, March 23, RCC President Bruce Herwig will lead a group on a “photo safari” to this fascinating desert zoo and gardens. There will be great opportunities to photograph plants, animals, and people.

  • Meet at the Coco’s Bakery Restaurant in Redlands at 7:30 am to carpool. 1140 W Colton Ave, Redlands, CA 92374. 
  • Or meet us at 8:45 am at the Living Desert Zoo entrance. 47900 Portola Ave, Palm Desert, CA 92260.

Tickets are $39.95 each (parking is free) and should be purchased ahead of time online. Select the March 23, 9:00 am entrance time.

We’ll plan on photographing till Noon and have lunch as a group. Then, you are officially on your own. Some may choose to stay, others will want to continue exploring.

While tripods are allowed, you are encouraged to “pack light.” One lens should suffice. Wear comfortable clothes, good walking shoes, and sunscreen.
